Lady Gaga Defends Her One Fingered Salutes

A Gossipcenter.com / Hollywood Gossip article posted photos of Lady Gaga in her studded panties and bra behind home plate at City Field in New York City: - both the back view and a front view in which she is seen giving one-fingered salutes with both hands. The article is titled Lady Gaga Defends Her Baseball Cheering Methods. Lady Gaga is quoted as saying "A middle finger is more New York than a corporate ambush. I bleed for my hometown, and I'd die for my fans".

Oops! Sorry.

Oops! Sorry. i should have read more carefully. That last article wasn't from the feminist blogosphere. Lady Gaga may well be a feminist but the article wasn't in a feminist blog. i feel like a dummy.
